Social scientist Jere Behrman gives an inside look at his work outside the classroom.
Brea Stover and Rachel Witte
When not in the classroom, Jere Behrman, the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Economics and Sociology, remains actively involved in the research and study of social sciences in part through his role as the Economics/Social Science member of the National Advisory Child Health and Human Development (NACHHD) Council. His expertise—Behrman has authored over 350 professional articles and 33 books, and researched with the World Bank, Asian Development Bank and the United Nations Development Program—has earned him the authority to serve on such a committee. As a member of this group, Behrman collaborates with his fellow Council members to advise, consult with and make recommendations to the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development director on matters relating to the research and functions of the Institute.
The following Q&A with Professor Behrman offers an insider’s look into his world as an educator and advisor in the social sciences.
